BEES

Bees in Southern Arizona

Bees in Arizona are essential pollinators of native plants, and honeybees are responsible for approximately 80% of all pollination in the state. The Sonoran Desert is home to over 800 species of bees, many of which are critical to the ecosystem.
Bees play a vital role in our environment and are essential to the food chain. Native bees pollinate plants, which provide food for other animals. Honeybees also produce honey, which is a valuable food source for humans.

Bees can also quickly become a problem in your home, workplace, or area. Horn Pest Management works to eliminate the problem while being mindful of the vital role bees play. Horn Pest Management has two removals: Africanized Bees and Honeycomb removal.

Honeybees

Honeybees are the most common type of bee in Arizona. They are important pollinators of native plants, and they produce honey.

Bumble bees

Bumble bees are giant, hairy bees that are important pollinators of native plants.

Cuckoo Bees

Cuckoo Bees are parasitic bees that lay their eggs in the nests of other bees.

Carpenter Bees

Carpenter Bees are giant bees that excavate holes in wood to build their nests.

Sweat Bees

Sweat Bees are small bees that are attracted to human sweat. They can be a nuisance, but they are not dangerous.

Africanized Bees

Africanized Bees are aggressive bees that were introduced to the Americas from Africa. They can be dangerous to humans and animals and should only be removed by a professional. Over time the Africanized Bees have integrated with the Honeybees. It is now fact that all beehives are to be considered Africanized, and the older, more established a hive becomes, the more aggressive the hive is.

Bee Infestation: The Signs

You may have a bee infestation if you see bees swarming or flying around your home or workplace. Other signs of a bee infestation include:
Z
Honeycomb in walls or ceilings
Z
Bees entering and exiting holes in walls or ceilings
Z
Bees flying around windows or doors
Z
An increase in the number of bees in your yard
If you see any of these signs, contact a professional bee removal company like Horn Pest Management immediately. Trying to remove the bees yourself can be dangerous and may make the problem worse.

The Removal Process

Once Horn Pest Management arrives at your home or business, they will assess the situation and determine the best course of action. The two main types of bee removal are Africanized Bees and Honeycomb removal.

Africanized Bees: This type of bee is aggressive and can be dangerous to humans and animals. The removal process typically involves using a bee smoker to calm the bees and then using a vacuum to remove them from the area.

Honeycomb: The honeycomb removal process involves removing the honeycomb from the wall or ceiling and then sealing the area to prevent bees from returning. This process is typically only used for small infestations.

After the bee removal is complete, Horn Pest Management will provide you with tips to prevent bees from returning in the future.
